Description


"The theory that AIDS originated in African monkeys arose from an incident of laboratory contamination." ? The scientific literature is clear: (1) New York City is the epicenter of the AIDS epidemic; (2) the theory that HIV came from monkeys is a fallacy; the theory that AIDS originated in African monkeys arose from an incident of laboratory contamination; and (3) the African AIDS epidemic-as-holocaust never manifested. "The first Africans diagnosed with AIDS were residents of Belgium." ? Fully referenced, based on a forensic review of over 3000 scientific and medical journal articles, this book redefines global concepts for the prevalence and distribution of HIV infection. For many readers, each page contains a revelation as the Author not only deconstructs many myths and misconceptions, but also describes how the current misconceptions arose. "The first documented case of international HIV transmission occurred between New York City and Copenhagen." ? This book redefines global concepts for the prevalence and distribution of HIV infection, and has powerful implications for HIV/AIDS funding, research prerogatives, and global health care interventions. Chris Jennings (Harvard, B.A., Biology 1976/77) excels at writing scientific books that fulfill the needs of professionals while rendering the science accessible to the average reader. His prior book, Understanding and Preventing AIDS: A Book for Everyone, was favorably reviewed by the New England Journal of Medicine ? adopted for staff education by Massachusetts General Hospital, the hospital affiliated with Harvard Medical School; the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS); the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID); and Walter Reed Army Medical Institute ? sold in medical bookstores ? purchased by innumerable city and state health agencies ? and utilized as a textbook at colleges, nursing schools, and public health schools. Contents: 218 pages, 20 tables, innumerable side boxes, and 500 references.
